I know I skipped a few days or even weeks but I don’t want to bore the reader with trivial like what I ate for breakfast (although who knows where a healthy diet might take me) and instead want to focus on the more exciting aspects of life.
EXCHANGE- Our family has brought in an exchange student from France and this experience so far has allowed us to exchange some bad emotions with good ones. As this young bright young lady has showed us the beauty and excitement that we miss most days and has inspired us to be happier with our own environment. When my children were younger we had Au Pair’s in the house to help my wife. These young ladies came from all over the world (actually Germany and Africa) and the experiences helped us see the world in different “shoes” (see last blog). Just like friends most you lose touch of but one has stayed close and we hope to see her if we ever visit Germany.
BIG BIRTHDAY- My actually birthday falls out in the winter so I know many of my friends and family won’t be able to join in the celebration or at least have that excuse. Therefore to end that excuse I’ve decided to extend it to the summer and have invited them to a cruise in June along with my family. If you consider yourself to be one of my friends and have been left out please contact me. I’m not able to afford to pay for your trip but at least I’ll get you a beer or two to get you spinning along the way.
